[Protocols] Minutes for March 4th, 2022

The minutes from the protocols subgroup<https://www.w3.org/2022/03/04-wcag3-protocols-minutes.html> are available.


  *   We will be going through an exercise for  the next few weeks to evaluate:
     *   How to evaluate whether the protocol was done
     *   How well the protocol was followed
     *   How to evaluate the quality of the results (if possible)
  *   We will be using the following (possible) protocols as examples to help with discussion:
     *   Plain Language, Visma UX, (BBC Gel A11y section if 3rd is needed)
  *   Possible ways to evaluate whether a protocol was done (Discussion still ongoing)
     *   Require the organization to publicly state:
        *   What protocol/part of protocol was done
        *   How the protocol was embedded in content or organization?
        *   How can the public see that the protocol was embedded?
        *   Date statement was made
  *   Key questions that need to be addressed later:
     *   Definition of a protocol?
     *   Is a protocol a document or part of a document?
     *   How will we handle overlap with WCAG? The overlap will shift

agenda+ Develop a way for a lay-person to assess whether a protocol was followed

     *   Pick 2-3 things that are likely protocols (Plainlanguage.gov, BBC style guidelines, ?)
